Cycling coach and sports scientist Dr. Allen Lim went back to the drawing board to create a new sports drink from scratch. He found that most drinks include things that weren’t helping aid performance and in some cases making riders feel ill.
So Lim crafted his own drink, utilizing all-natural ingredients, using far less sugar with more natural fruit flavoring and more electrolytes. While it was known as the “Secret Drink Mix” to riders, the Boulder-based Skratch Labs has now introduced the Hydration Mix, which is available as a powder-based formula in four different flavors – Lemons & Limes, Raspberries, Oranges, and Pineapples. The Everyday Hydration Mix is for those who might be simply dehydrated from working in the yard or just spending time in the sun, while the Exercise Hydration Mix is for those ready to go the distance.
